Local Community Programs Supported - Bank of America Charitable Foundation: Local Grantmaking
http://www.bankofamerica.com/foundation/index.cfm?template=fd_localgrantmaking
The Bank of America Charitable Foundation works to create neighborhood excellence in the communities served by the bank in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. While local community priorities determine how funding is allocated, grants typically fall into four main categories: Community Development, Education, Health and Human Services, and Arts and Culture. Each of the company's markets, in partnership with local community leaders, sets specific target areas of interest within these major categories. There are no deadlines for grant applications. Visit the company's website to access the priorities for local funding in each region.
